SIMPLE "FALL" BANNER

September 17, 2015

The weather here is still warm, reaching the mid-20s in the afternoon, but it isn't stopping me from bringing a little autumn vibe to our home.  This morning I put together this simple "FALL" banner, which I'm sharing with you.  Simple handmade projects like this make my house feel more like a home.  You can make this banner too, with a little time and a few supplies.

 

 

TOOLS & MATERIALS:

 

 

  • Scrapbook paper in your choice

  • Paper trimmer 

  • Craft punch

  • Gold adhesive letters

  • Jute twine

  • Scissors

  • Gold glitter washi tape

 

DIRECTIONS:

 

Choose a scrapbook paper you love.  My banner isn't really "fallish" in colour, but goes with the colours in my home.  Then, trim 4 rectangles.  I made mine 3.5 x 5 inches large.

 

Punch two holes at the top of each paper.

 

 

Then, carefully adhere the letters, making them as centre as possible.  Spell out the word "FALL".

 

Feed a length of jute twine through the banner.  Cut lengths of washi tape and press together between the banner, and on either ends.  Believe it or not, I picked up the washi tape from Dollarama.  Then, cut the ends of the tape in a "v" shape.

 

  

 

I hung my banner up on my kitchen chalkboard.

 

 

 

 

Total project time: about 20 minutes.
